This school has allowed my child to become bullied to the extinct that he has thought about hurting himself. They are refusing to allow him in school because of an address issue when I went to enroll him into the correct school which is condor elementary the school to has refused to take him becasue he is special services the district has told me he has to stay home and miss more school until they have the time to transfer all his services they have set my son up for failure and take no responsibility for it. What happened to no child left behind? How much more time does he have to miss from school. It is also convenient that they did this when PASS testing is going on because they know that he will not score high on the testing because they have allowed him to miss so much school and they don't want the scores to tarnish their false reputation of being an award winning school.

In continuation to what I was saying, I asked the teacher for extra work, instead of complaining again, to pull up my child's C. And the response was pretty much, due to copy limitation it wasn't possible but I could go to the dollar store and use websites to help her practice. Hummmm, that surely won't change her grade now will it?! If teaching doesn't make you happy or smile, it shouldn't be done! Because slowly my child is going from not wanting to miss a day of school to not wanting to go anymore!!! Some teachers maybe there because they love it, but some are clearly not afraid to show that they are there just for a pay check!!

The diversity of programs allows every child to reach their full potential! My son is doing just as wonderful as his brothers did...they started at Keels in Kindergarten and are now in the 8th grade.

I think that this school needs a lot of work. It is not clean and some of the policies are not healthy for the children, and hinder their learning experience.
